The Election Commission of Pakistan on Thursday issued notices to chief of his own faction of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam Maulana Fazlur Rehman, former National Assembly speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq and former Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister Pervez Khattak for using indecent language during their election campaigns.

In its notices, the ECP deplored abusive, insolent and derogatory language used against other leaders that has been aired and published by the electronic and print media, besides doing the rounds on social media.

Pointing out that this was a clear violation of the code of conduct, the ECP asked the three political leaders to desist from the tendency and summoned them to appear before the commission on July 21 (Saturday).

Meanwhile, Imran Khan’s lawyer has assured the commission the PTI chief won’t use word ‘donkey’ for opponents in the future.
